Tetiaroa will cast its spell on you instantly. It is a tiny secluded atoll in the windward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, 30 miles north of Tahiti. It is composed of a ring of thirteen islets, surrounded by a lagoon and protected by a coral reef. Tetiaroa (meaning ‘stands apart’) once served as an exclusive summer retreat for Tahitian royalty. Today this pristine paradise, owned by the estate of Marlon Brando, has a private resort on one of the islets, the only human habitation on the atoll. This haven with its breathtaking beauty is famous for its white sand beaches, turquoise, crystal clear waters, and ancient archeological sites. On a day trip to Tetiaroa you can explore Tahuna Iti or Bird Island with a naturalist guide and go snorkeling in the lagoon. This is a place of rare biodiversity and a natural sanctuary for birds like white terns, brown boobies and frigate birds. To relax in this lush oasis of tranquility, book a stay at The Brando.
